    COM9: Dissemination of knowledge


Up-to-date technical information is needed to construct the best concrete structures. The newest information is necessary when it comes to material properties, design methods as well as construction methods. By recognising its importance, the fib decided to create a separate commission on the dissemination of knowledge.

Scope and objective of technical work

fib COM9, Dissemination of knowledge, develops, coordinates and uses appropriate means to disseminate the knowledge available within fib and the results of the work by its commissions and task groups. The various means of dissemination are detailed below. All of the fib commissions and task groups contribute, either directly or indirectly, through their activities.
